Half Square Triangles R#5
Half Square Triangle = 4 1/2â€ finished block with one side dark print, one side light print
2 partners each to receive 15 finished 4 1/2â€ HSTâ€™s = total 30 HSTâ€™s made and sent
Start with two 5â€ print fabric charms (charms = a square cut of 100% cotton fabric, in this case 5â€), one light print and one dark print. Place the two charms right sides together. Using your ruler and a pencil, draw a straight line on the back of the light print from the upper left hand corner down to lower right hand corner. Stitch a scant Â¼â€ seam either side of the pencil line. Cut on the pencil line. Press gently so as not to stretch the block. Trim the dog ears, and then trim the block to 4 1/2 inches using the center seam line as your base. Always trim and press for success.
The goal is to get as many different HSTâ€™s as possible so please try to use a print only once unless you match it to a different print the second time. No solid fabrics.
Weâ€™ve found that the higher the contrast between the dark side and the light side, the better the HSTâ€™s work in any project.
Swappers must have at least 10 snail-mail swaps to their credit, and a 4.8 rate or better.
I will angel this swap but will publicize if you flake. Please donâ€™t make me tattle!
